Plant data in real time

GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has launched its real-time manufacturing intelligence application, Proficy Real-Time Information Portal 3.0, allowing users to gain business insight from plant data in real time.

The powerful application provides visibility into plant floor operations. As a result, it enables real time decision support, continuous process improvement and enhances the return on current and future IT investments.

Intelligent Platforms software general manager Erik Udstuen said GE Fanuc offered Proficy Real-Time Information Portal as a part of its tightly-integrated suite of production management solutions.

“Additionally, GE Fanuc embraces an open and layered technology approach allowing Proficy Portal to report on plant floor data from third-party manufacturing technologies.

“This is an important element to preserving customer’s investments while extending their capability to improve performance Proficy Real-Time Information Portal provides a rich, web-based environment for developing and deploying visualisation, analytical and reporting applications,” he said.

“As a pure web-based application, Proficy Portal allows the end user unprecedented access to data and control over how to visualise and analyse it.

“In addition, it features interactive analysis of real-time and historical data sources through trend charts, grids and data links. This provides users insight into the operation of their plant for making crucial improvements to quality and efficiency.”

A single web client combines content from other GE Fanuc software applications, such as Proficy HMI/SCADA – iFIX and data from across all on-line data sources within the plant and the organisation allowing for real-time decision making at all levels.

Proficy Portal’s graphical presentation rapidly communicates essential information from more complex data sets for notification of alerts, status changes and data summaries.

As the web client for the entire GE Fanuc software portfolio, Proficy Real-Time Information Portal provides a consistent set of tools for analysing and reporting disparate process, lab and shop-floor SPC systems, along with interfaces to off-line Six Sigma tools such as Minitab.

Proficy Real-Time Information Portal is a thin client application that runs under the Microsoft IIS webserver and connects to plant floor technology such as OPC, HMI/SCADA, quality systems, production management systems and third-party databases.

It provides self-service ad-hoc reporting, and presents data in its natural presentation form.
